Cheri Beasley was raised in a family steeped in faith, service, and hard work. She and her husband Curt raised their twin sons right here in North Carolina, passing on those same values.
As a public defender, a judge, and eventually, the first African American woman to serve as Chief Justice of the NC Supreme Court, Cheri worked every dayto keep communities safe, protect the law, and defend our constitutional rights.
- As Chief Justice, Cheri helped to create the first human trafficking court.
- She created a family leave policy for more than 6,000 court employees to help people take care of their families and succeed at their jobs.
- And she worked with law enforcement to take on the school-to-prison pipeline and keep kids in the classroom and out of the courtroom.
Over the years, she’s seen that Washington is broken. She knows that both parties have failed to stand up for everyday people.
And though this race won’t be easy, we know she is up for the challenge. Because Cheri has never shied away from a tough fight.
Cheri has been tested. And she knows what it will take to win, because she’s the only candidate in this race who has won statewide—twice. And in 2020, she earned 11,000 more votes than the president and 125,000 more than the Democratic Senate candidate, leaning on strength with both suburban and urban voters.
That’s why she’s outraised every other candidate every single quarter with support from all 100 counties in North Carolina.
That’s why she’s earned support from over 200 leaders, including Governor Cooper and key organizations like the NC State AFL-CIO.
We can trust that Cheri will be the kind of leader we need in the Senate: a true and independent voice for North Carolina that will always put the people first.
